Fenwick User Page[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven. I noticed that you have patrolled and deleted my page. Please can you be more specific as to the inappropriate use? Can you please also explain to me, why my article - which was not even published got removed? The page was only in "sandbox" mode and not officially published yet. I thought this was the whole idea of the sandbox mode - to correct things before they are published. Please correct me if I am mistaken. Thanks. mcflyza (talk) 14:55, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for the feedback and explanation. I was just reading up again on the section of notability and I can say that for the previous page I created in 2014, I indeed attempted to show notability, by supplying references to the website on which the newspaper article had been published, yet that did not seem to be sufficient evidence, so it is a little confusing as to what is "sufficient enough" to be considered notable. The irony is that I could point out to you other companies in the same business line that have successfully published a wiki article similar to the ones I attempted to post - but that's not what I am here for, because if you patrol them, it will be my fault. Unfair, I know, but their good luck I suppose. Thanks.

"Why can't I have a substandard page? Those other substandard pages misled me into thinking your standards were lower!" "Oops, you're right! Tell us where those substandard pages are, and we'll remove them!" "NOOOO! DON'T REMOVE THEM! IF YOU REMOVE THEM, IT'LL BE MY FAULT!!!!" How can we show that our standards are higher if people like you don't let us know where the substandard stuff is? DS (talk) 14:00, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
Please don't misunderstand me. I never, at any time said those other page were substandard. I said that I have come across pages like mine, which seem to be low on "notability". I asked for a little feedback, such as what is considered sufficient enough feedback, but did not get any. For example, the reference originally came from an external source (a newspaper article), but published on the company website, for some reason was not considered sufficient enough. I'm trying to understand what is acceptable and sufficient enough to sustain a page on Wiki, because even referencing an external article doesn't seem to be sufficient. There is no reason to get sarcastic or hostile.

Jean-Toussaint Merle[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven,

And thank you for having taken the time to review this newly created article of mine. Just, I was wondering: like all the articles I create on the en Wiki, this one is a direct translation from the French original and nobody ever corrects the mistakes that are included in the text (style, syntax, vocabulary etc.). Maybe they are flawless after all but this I can't believe. Is there a policy on this version of Wikipedia to be very lax and tolerant re. the articles created by non-native English speakers?

Dulce et decorum est/Pro patria Casey. (Irrelevant friendliness, no fear!)[edit]

Random editor here who has been trying to look at userpages of frequently appearing Wikipedia cast members during a recent spate of dull conference calls, and I have to comment that, as a nearly-45-year-old who, since about the 15th year of said terrestrial tenure, has felt that being able to rattle off memorized poems was a party trick worth having, you invoked in a remarkably economical number of words two of the first of said "party tricks" that ever entered my repertoire before I was even of driving age. Yay, DragonflySixtyseven! (I am so sad for the loss of your loved one and have no better words for that apart from another deeply loved "party trick," Frost's "Fire and Ice," which doesn't fit but it's what I can do at the moment.) If you don't know Wallace Stevens' "Anecdote of the Jar", it is my current favorite, maybe just 'coz my late dad was from Tennessee, whether or not he ever placed a jar upon a hill there. My very best. - Julietdeltalima (talk) 00:08, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Freedom Scientific (part II)[edit]

Hello, just a heads up re this conversation, the article's been re-created by Patricktimony (who I've met personally in Washington). At least the new version has outside sorces; I've tweaked it a bit and made the older versions available to non-admins, but I feel too close to the subject to do much else.

freemartin[edit]

my apologies if i am posting this in error in attempt to write back on your edit reversion

appreciate your comments on the edit to the freemartin/twin female calf page. will edit that to try and produce a coherent statement

"a subjective assessment is that frequently the hair at the ventral tip of the vulva forms a tuft in a freemartin heifer."

perhaps " frequently freemartin heifers have at the tip of ventral tip of their vulva a tuft of hair which is distinctive in these individuals, albeit a subjective assessment"


i write this because i am a veterinary surgeon specializing in cattle reproduction and see these cases often in practice, as well as the literature on them. thank you. jh - vmd — Preceding unsigned comment added by Acornembryo (talkcontribs) 00:10, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

fully protected template[edit]

Hi! I've been going through fully-protected templates to see if they may be good candidates to request a lower protection level to allow template editors to edit them. I noticed you fully-protected Template:Whydidyoudothat a while back as a "private" template. The template namespace is usually collaborative, similar to the mainspace. Would you consider moving this page into your userspace? You would still be able to link to it and substitute it just like normal. If you moved it to User:DragonflySixtyseven/Whydidyoudothat, then you could type {{subst:User:DragonflySixtyseven/Whydidyoudothat}} to substitute it on any page. ~ RobTalk 21:42, 3 June 2016 (UTC) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Thank you for reviewing my draft of "Leatrice Rose", DragonflySixtyseven. I would like to upload a photo of a painting by this artist.

I am related to the artist. My article will be objective and referenced. Jayne3 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jayne3 (talkcontribs) 17:18, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Just a reminder that in just over a week at Wikimania there's going to be a cross-Wiki discussion about the systems of control of new pages. This is a round-table rather than a presentation or a lecture. On the agenda are reforms to the new article reviewing systems and ways to help new users better understand our content policies.

DYK for Loon (monkey)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 27 June 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Loon (monkey), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that diabetic children were sent to visit Loon, a drill at the San Diego Zoo, to help them overcome their aversion to needle injections? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Loon (monkey). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Loon (monkey)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Cassandra Parkin[edit]

I was shocked to discover that you simply deleted my page on Cassandra Parkin without even giving me any warning. I only realised what happened when I saw that a link to it on my user page led nowhere. Is this standard Wikipedia conduct? Though I'm sure you had good reason, briefly given as "notability not asserted", I worked hard on that page, so to see it tossed in the bin without having been allowed to plead its case, or even be aware that it was due for deletion, stuns me. It was not an offensive or irrelevant page, so I'm not sure why I've been treated so disdainfully here. Is there no way that my work can be restored, should I make a good enough case for its notability? --JackHeslop91 (talk) 09:15, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)Admins do have the authority to delete pages on sight in accordance with our speedy deletion policy. In this case, it looks like the page would fall under A7 since it arguably doesn't make a credible claim of significance. Internet fame for one review and publishing works that get reviews is run of the mill for many non-notable authors. The only thing that looks like it could be a claim of notability is the Scott Prize, but based on a Google News search, it does not seem to be a prize that gets much coverage, so the deletion is definitely not out of process. You can always start a userspace draft and demonstrate with reliable sources (i.e. not the self-published references from the author's own website + Amazon present in the original article) that the author would be notability as a way to potentially get it restored into mainspace eventually, or, depending on Dragonfly's response here, possibly take it to deletion review if (and only if) and agreement here is not reached.---- Patar knight - chat/contributions 14:49, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for explaining the policy to me. I'm still surprised I wasn't at the very least even told my page had been deleted. Is there any record of what I wrote so I can at least keep a hold of my work, should I wish to contest the deletion of the page and possibly have it restored? --JackHeslop91 (talk) 19:35, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Admin work with respect to user page review[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven,

I got a notification of a user page review and got an explanation through the link on the header for editing pages.

The link to Template:Whydidyoudothat is broken and there is another link leading to User:DragonflySixtyseven/Whydidyoudothat.

You are probably aware of this.

Anyway, is there a means of marking a user page in such a way as to make your work easier? Please let me know.

If it doesn't exist already, some page having a stream of recommendations, policies and changes might be useful.

Kind regards,

--JamesPoulson (talk) 20:33, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Deletion of WP user, and his/her articles[edit]

Hi DragoflySixtyseven, I have been taken aback by the removal of a large number of articles made by User:Beetstraw. What the grounds for the user's blocking is, it seems to be sockpuppetting. However, I wonder what the reason is for removing their articles, as far as I could see they have full validity, they are good, and abiding by the article editing rules. Now that is a matter of concern for us, since the removal affects negatively a tournament taking place in the WP. Regards Iñaki LL (talk) 10:33, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Sorry, User:Iñaki LL, but while there can be good reasons to keep content created by the sock of a longterm sockmaster, someone blocked for "systematic abuse of non-free content policy", a tournament is not one of them. Drmies (talk) 17:53, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
@DragonflySixtyseven:Good morning, I am bringing the comment from my user page. The removal of articles has sometimes entailed the removal of legitimate information, and rightful editors, such as this. I do not have access to the articles, but there may be more. Can you please reinstate it? Iñaki LL (talk) 07:53, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Iñaki LL: the articles, as much as the reason why they were created, stand as a trophy for this block evading and sockpuppeting editor. I strongly advice that these articles stay deleted, and at most independently recreated by other users writing their own content. --Dirk Beetstra T C 12:13, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
What? Did you ever read what I wrote? I have not stalked anyone, I started this section for legitimate reasons, and I kindly request this administrator to restore removal of content added / article created by an another editor, as he suggested. Thanks Iñaki LL (talk) 12:34, 16 July 2016S (UTC)
Yes, you started this for legitimate reasons, and I am not accusing you of stalking, I am the stalker here (click the link).
Your request is fine, but I strongly suggest not to restore the material, per WP:RBI and WP:DENY. Not only his score in the tournament, but also the content/articles that this editor has written are a trophy for them. That content is created in violation of our policies and guidelines. Did you see wat Drmies wrote? --Dirk Beetstra T C 12:51, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Honestly, I think we are talking to cross purposes. I have not reverted anything. Secondly, in the sweepingo removal made, an article created by another editor has been removed, so please restore it. By the way, my petition was to this contributor. Thanks Iñaki LL (talk) 14:42, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Iñaki LL:. The way I see it (if you are talking about Hercules fighting Nemean lion, Lyoko%C3%AF created an article on July 9. Beetstraw then created a duplicate article with some different content on the 11th and then wiped the earlier created article on the 12th, overwriting it with a redirect. The later article was deleted (by a checkuser, not DS). Unless you are talking about another article, I don't see content by other editors that was deleted. --Dirk Beetstra T C 16:10, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Adding to it, by far most of the content was copied straight from an external website. And on none of the pages that Beetstraw created have significant edits by others. --Dirk Beetstra T C 17:04, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Ok then, thanks. Could Lyoko's initial version be restored by chance? Iñaki LL (talk) 21:02, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Already done; glad to help. DS (talk) 22:59, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Mass deletions[edit]

Can you help. I recently came across an article created by Fouetté rond de jambe en tournant which had been deleted. I tried to find out why and the reason given was "mass deletion" which explained what had happened ... but not why. I looked for a reason but I could not find one .... all I could find was the deleted article and other edits by other users (including me) which had also been deleted. I decided to reverse the deletion, but I wasn't happy that I had acted wisely only efficiently. I now see a new mass deletion where the reason is "mass deletion". Can you explain how I can find the reason for mass deletions? I have seen one reason given as "use of multiple accounts" but this may not effect the quality of articles at all. Thanks for your time. Victuallers (talk) 19:26, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Victuallers: creations, sometimes with wholesale copying of external texts and creating duplicate articles by socks of a blocked editor. The editor sees their creations, and prizes in competitions that they win with it as trophies. See WP:RBI and WP:DENY]]. I would suggest to keep the edits deleted, except if there are significant content contributions from others, and to write the articles from scratch. --Dirk Beetstra T C 19:57, 16 July 2016 (UTC) Victuallers (reping). --Dirk Beetstra T C 19:58, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
I think for the page in question, there is significant work by others. --Dirk Beetstra T C 20:04, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
A lot of these have been restored and there appears to be no evidence in the articles of why we/wiki might want them deleted. I think this mass deletion has caused Wikipedia to lose a lot of good conduct. I still cannot work out why you/we deleted the work. This is like burning the books of authors whose life styles are out of fashion. Can you please ensure that there is a link back to the reason why mass deletions are taking place in future. "Part of mass deletion" is not a reason. Other editors and admins want to know that articles are not being deleted as a punishment ...... as this is against the prime directive. Can you undelete these en masses as it is consuming a lot of time to do one by one? 16:13, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Steven Universe[edit]

Hi, can you please change the Steven Universe List of Episodes page to my version please, which is the correct version? You locked it on the incorrect one. Thanks, Minecraft69 (talk) 22:43, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

@Minecraft69: No, in fact it is not, as I explained on the talk page. See also WP:THEWRONGVERSION. Protection is not an endorsement of either version. nyuszika7h (talk) 22:47, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
@Nyuszika7H: Almost every show out there has shorts, and none of them count them as an actual episode. They only count as a production code (1031-058), and by that logic the shorts should be 58 and ALL numbers after 58 should be changed. It's definitely not episode 79 though. Also remember that the staff work by production code, not aired episode number. Also, the episode numbers are the airing numbers, and the shorts never aired on TV, they're only internet shorts. Minecraft69 (talk) 22:53, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
@Minecraft69: Discuss that on the talk page, then. No administrator is going to revert to your preferred version without consensus. ~ Rob13Talk 01:39, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Wait. DS67 locked in on the wrong one? ADMINABUSE. NeilN, I need you to get on it right now: full protection, restore the good version, block the wrong editor (I mean the one who was wrong, not the other one--they get a barnstar), and drag the admin off to ArbCom. This is an outrage. Drmies (talk) 15:13, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
    • Drmies, you laugh, but... [1] --NeilN talk to me 15:19, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
      • You know, I was wondering the same thing myself--looking at these editors and seeing that none of them were blocked. But I think I get it: first, there's nothing more to be gained from a block. Second, it's so ridiculous that any continuation (as you noted on one of their talk pages) will result in a serious block. Third, blocking them will not solve the Real Life Problem of whether it was 79 or 80. As you may know, I'm always itching to block someone, anyone--though not as much as AlexTheWhovian--and I can feel that itch here too, two days after, but I can't fault DS67. I do understand, however, the desire to hear from them. Typically if I choose protection over a block I follow up with my Come To Jesus speech. It rarely works, but I feel it's traditional.

Review of material in sandboxes?[edit]

Hi... Just got a notice that you reviewed material on several of my sandbox pages. As I am new to their use I'd like to understand why. I thought sandboxes were private scratch space...

Vox Day[edit]

DragonflySixtyseven: Please see the discussion on this addition here: User talk:David Gerard and respond on the article's talk page so I don't have to go through this again. I don't think you can call Chaos Horizon just a random blog. Kempner is quite the math geek and does quite good analyses. If you can't tolerate his blog as a reference, then I think you should remove the reference to John Scalzi's blog as well. Once you accept one "random" blog into an article, then you've opened the door to others. If I remove Chaos Horizon, then Day's support for The Three Body Problem remains, and the statistics are attached for anyone to do their own analysis. Pkeets (talk) 02:46, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

'The' in title[edit]

Speedy-deletion of National Electrical Manufacturers Association[edit]

You deleted it by CSD#A7, but it said "publishes more than 600 standards, application guides, white papers, and technical papers". I'm not sure that is actual notability, but it seems like an assertion of it. Want to take it to AFD? DMacks (talk) 13:12, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Waterboyy (2015 Thai movie)[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven

Noticed that the page that i helped created and edited has been deleted, i hope that you could help to re-instate the page back, as this is a Thai movie, and from time to time, i will be doing some editing for the page. Hope to hear good news from youEvan Weinstein | Talk 15:36, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Waterboyy[edit]

First of all, let me start off by saying I've known about you for years, and am glad to see you're one of the few good editors and admins from 10 years ago who is somehow still here. That said, I'm a little concerned about your deletion of Waterboyy. Deleted because "notability not asserted." Problem is, films aren't really covered under that in Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion. The article was a bit of a mess- I didn't write it, it did not appear to be written by someone whose first language is English. That said, there is WP:BIAS to consider. It follows there wouldn't be a lot of sources on the film in English, but it does appear to have made news- [2] WP:AFD would have been appropriate it you felt it were not notable. Ribbet32 (talk) 03:43, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

It's not a question of whether it's notable, it's a question of whether the article said anything to assert notability, which it didn't. Show me a list of sources (not a link to Google) and I'll restore it into your userspace. DS (talk) 11:40, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
That's Google News, not just Google. Ribbet32 (talk) 13:38, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
Still a link to Google. Show me the actual news coverage. Doesn't have to be English as long as it fits through Google Translate or similar. DS (talk) 14:32, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
I question your handling of this whole issue, including the misuse of WP:CSD and why you wouldn't bother with AfD or WP:PROD, but:

Ribbet32 (talk) 14:58, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Good enough; I've restored it and moved it into your userspace, where I expect you will integrate content from those news sources before moving it back into mainspace! DS (talk) 15:03, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, DragonflySixtyseven. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Deletion of "Center for European Policy Analysis" page[edit]

Greetings,

I noticed that you deleted the Center for European Policy Analysis page due to lack of sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log/delete&page=Center_for_European_Policy_Analysis

I would like to request that you undelete this page so I can add citations and update old information.

Many thanks!

Deleted draft[edit]

There was a draft that you provided me some months back. I had requested a change of case in my username (from lower to upper case) and in the process the draft you provided got deleted [3]. Can anything be done about this? I have not published or even intend to publish it until I get a few more sources.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 00:49, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Thankyou for the 'friendly' response. I was unaware that a deadline has been crossed. I guess even adding a few reliable sources doesn't count as a head-start. Even asking others to pitch in and getting no feedback or creating other pages doesn't count as someone having the potential. Oh well, I'm not sorry that as time goes by that this place is loosing contributors daily and it's no wonder because those making an effort get no appreciation and instead get more snubs. It'll be very interesting to see where this site ends up as it looses page views within the next five years and the vast level of incompetence amongst admins can blame themselves for when this place is close to empty. Good-night.--NadirAli نادر علی (talk) 23:23, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:46, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Credit Union Financial eXchange Deletion[edit]

Could you be more specific about what you are looking for to establish notability?

CUFX has been mentioned as a standards body[Brianary 1], and is a topic for credit union vendor integration[Brianary 2][Brianary 3], similar to Interactive Financial Exchange for banks.

Brianary (talk) 18:02, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Credit Union Financial eXchange is the Credit Union Industry standard for integration. Requesting restoration of the page. CUFX is an initiative effort of the Credit National Association. Please advise Dlacroix cufx (talk) 19:11, 7 December 2016 (UTC) David LaCroix Project Manager CUFX

Can you supply me with any information that has any sources whatsoever? All you had was "here's what CUFX says about itself", without even any sources. Does CUFX meet notability criteria? I have no idea. Did you show that it meets notability criteria? No. Did you even say anything to indicate that it might meet notability criteria? No. Could I have let you know that the content was flatly unacceptable, so as to give you a chance to fix it, instead of just deleting it? Sure, but it had been tagged as fatally flawed for almost a month at the time I deleted it, and we had no reason to believe you would ever come back and deal with the mess you left (and indeed, it seems to have taken you two weeks to even notice). Would it have harmed anyone to leave the article undeleted? Frankly, yes: it would have caused great aggravation and stress for the people on the Help chat who have to explain to flustered neophytes that "just because CUFX has a totally unsourced verging-on-spam garbage-pile of a page, that doesn't mean that you can have a totally unsourced verging-on-spam garbage-pile of a page too. Yes, we try to delete the unacceptable garbage pages when we find them, but... well, no, CUFX is an exception. It just is." So that's why I deleted it: because it was unacceptably inadequate, and because it actively misled people as to what is acceptable on Wikipedia. Can the article be restored? Sure, iff you can do a better job. Can you? DS (talk) 21:01, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

In popular culture[edit]

Hi, I found your user page through your edit to Grandfather paradox and I saw your guidelines for "in popular culture". I disagree with your criteria and think they're not clear-cut and too prone to interpretation. However, the last two paragraphs hit the nail on the head - examples should be significant according to reliable third-party sources. This is not only my opinion, it's the opinion of current consensus by discussion on WP:V. Despite the overwhelming support for this requirement on WP:V, my RfCs on the subject were generally opposed. Since you're interested in sorting out the "in popular culture" situation, I think you should start an RfC for adding this requirement to the WP:INDISCRIMINATE policy:

To provide encyclopedic value, data should be put in context with explanations referenced to independent sources. As explained in § Encyclopedic content above, merely being true, or even verifiable, does not automatically make something suitable for inclusion in the encyclopedia. Wikipedia articles should not be: [...] 5. Excessive listings of examples. Any example in an article that's not a stand-alone list should have sources that not only establish the example's verifiability, but also its significance in the context of the article.

This sets two levels of verifiability of examples: lists (for example List of time travel works of fiction) that include every possible example, and articles (for example Time travel in fiction) that should only includes examples that are cited to sources that describe their significance. This will help clean up example farms and other conglomerations of non-encyclopedic examples. BrightRoundCircle (talk) 15:50, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Now that I think about it I'll just start the RfC myself. BrightRoundCircle (talk) 16:08, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Tony Rodi (talk) 21:29, 22 December 2016 (UTC) Hi Dragonfly This morning I discovered that an idea I had to convert our road systems to solar thermoelectric systems for energy production is actually being implemented. I expressed this to a public servant in Australia some 10 years ago. I have also predicted the onset of global climate change with the greatest accuracy that I'm aware of. I have been involved in Australia's most significant cultural and historic urban developments with little recognition due to political and vested interest opposition. Some of these issues have had international media coverage. Wikipedia does not advise and will not accept autobiographies. Is it possible for you to have a look at my user page, with the view to publishing an article? viz:-

Female Privilege[edit]

I agree that the article is/was probably fatally flawed, but a CSD was already declined and there was serious discussion ongoing at the talk page among multiple editors. I am not clear on what basis you deleted the article since no CSD criteria was cited. -Ad Orientem (talk) 22:35, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

For what it's worth, I was in the process of nominating the article to WP:AfD when DragonflySixtyseven deleted it. It's certainly an IAR deletion, and I agree with you that it does not meet any of the speedy deletion criteria, but I don't think it's out of the bounds of admin discretion. My argument for AfD was pretty much that it was a poorly-written article written from unreliable, POV sources, and my attempts to find sources showed few results beyond what was included in the article (except for some sources discussing white feminism, an article I'm currently working on...) If there is any actual objection to the deletion the article could be restored and I could bring it to AfD, as I'd originally intended, but that seems unnecessarily bureaucratic unless you believe it actually stands a chance at becoming a legitimate article. I looked at the discussion that was taking place on the talk page, and besides the article's creator no one was arguing for the article to be kept, rather just discussing where the term should redirect. GorillaWarfare (talk) 01:22, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
I think the article would almost certainly have died in AfD and it was an obvious POV agenda piece, so I'm not exactly mourning its passing. Under the circumstances IAR works for me. But I agree that if there is any objection it will need to be restored and sent through the formal processes for deletion. -Ad Orientem (talk) 01:44, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Puppies[edit]

On a personal note, I particularly like the bit she spits up in the comments where all international publishers are part of the conspiracy because there's no possibility that books full of guns by American gun nuts just don't have widespread appeal - but I think that was inevitable after Ancillary Justice was translated into umpteen languages and Corriera had one book out in French.

Deletion of Backtrader[edit]

Since it seems you are so eager to destroy pages, you can also delete the reference of backtrader here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technical_analysis_software. It would save someone else's time. You seem to have plenty of it.

You may also be so kind, go over the list on that page and remove all the entries whose notability is some orders of magnitude below that of backtrader and you may also delete its associated pages. You'll soon run out of fingers and toes to keep the count under control, but you will have made a great and NOTABLE service.

Only so may your deletion action make sense. But of course, who cares about things making sense these days, it's all about short term targets and objectives, the so called "low hanging fruits". Reviewing a list? No way. Someone else does that please. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mementix (talkcontribs) 09:05, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

The answer from user DragonflySixtySeven was left in the talk page of the user complaining rather than here, including quality words such as "damn". That really speaks for itself and makes it pointless to consider pointing why and where the vigilante is completely wrong in his answer and his assumptions. Keep on "damning" people ... I will just "damn" mark my account as "retired" ... fare well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mementix (talkcontribs) 22:04, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of Article[edit]

Hello,

On 1 February you deleted an article I recently created (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bita_Esmaeli) for "notability not asserted." I was wondering how I can modify the article to establish notability? It was my first article, but I strove to emulate the level of rigor and number of citations of pages for other prominent professors and physicians. I also did not receive any notifications or detailed comments about why the article was deleted. Thank you for your time.

Bgutstein (talk) 06:52, 13 February 2017 (UTC)


DragonflySixtyseven,

Thank you for your quick and reasoned response. Your points make sense, and I have taken them into account with the notability criteria for academics (Wikipedia:Notability (academics)) to make the following changes:

  • Your point about the "best" and "top" awards seems reasonable to me. While they may have some importance to patients (and, as a result, clinicians), they do not really fit with the other academic awards listed. I have removed them from the infobox and awards list. I instead inserted a brief reference to an external source that covers them in more detail.
  • I added independent sources for various of the academic awards in the awards list.
  • I added a Web of Science Citation Report as a source, which quantifies the impact of Dr. Esmaeli's research and also acts as a link to a list of her publications.

I would like to make the argument for notability based on points 1 and 3 of the above guidelines. Web of Science is an independent and reliable source that speaks to Dr. Esmaeli's significant impact on her field, and it is my understanding that the American Ophthalmological Society is highly prestigious and selective (Dr. Esmaeli's membership is now confirmed by an independent source). I have created a draft of the page and submitted it for wider review, which was helpful, as I already received a comment about reliable sources and some editing for style and neutrality. It is located here: Draft:Bita_Esmaeli.

It seems to me that if the new sources suffice to support notability, and the previous sources were okay for other facts in the article, the page may now be acceptable. Is the page now acceptable in your opinion? If not, how can I further improve it to reach acceptability?

Thanks again for your efforts and guidance.

DragonflySixtyseven,

Akademia is not a scam. Even if it's not as popular and many think that it's a scam, it doesn't take away the fact that Mr.Cassar was nominated and later on also won his section.

Edits to Glen Gould actor page[edit]

HI I am following up on the page you created for Glen Gould. I added quite a bit of information to it such as, a table with awards, nominations and a table that listed selected works. I also added his image. This morning everything was deleted by another editor and all that work was lost. Also, his family history was extremely minimized and unfortunately no longer represents his Indigenous roots. I am a little unclear as to why this happened. I created and modeled his actor page based on numerous other examples on Wikipedia. Feeling pretty disheartened. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Culturestorm (talkcontribs) 15:53, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Query[edit]

Hi, this is Wikipedia user TH1980. I heard that you were discussing with IJethroBT the possibility of me appealing my topic ban for talk pages only. I don't know what you discussed with him, but if I were to make such an appeal soon, do you think it would be likely to succeed?TH1980 (talk) 01:48, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

I only vaguely remember that discussion, sorry. I don't know which topic you're banned from, nor am I quite sure of why (although presumably it's something you did). I think I may have suggested that you be allowed to post on talk pages, but I don't know enough about the situation to make any predictions. DS (talk) 03:58, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
I read your e-mail. To be more clear: I try to not get involved with topic bans, or with issues pertaining to topic bans. I'm not particularly interested in reading up on the issue, as it would involve combing through dozens (if not hundreds) of diffs on multiple pages, and assessing the behavior of many people as they get angry at each other. As for the question of whether an appeal of your block would be likely to succeed: I have no way of knowing. Would you be polite? Would you have understood and addressed the issues which caused the block to be imposed in the first place? Would you ask the appropriate person (i.e., not me)? DS (talk) 17:30, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
Okay, thank you for your time. As for your questions: 1. I would be polite. 2. The issues are ones that may actually be non-issues made into something out of nothing by other Wikipedia members with agendas, so what happened to me is very murky. 3. I am still seeking the appropriate person to talk to.TH1980 (talk) 18:57, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
Try asking Jethrobt, he's the one who knows what's going on. Also, don't accuse other people of 'having agendas'. Everyone has an agenda, it's part of being alive. DS (talk) 00:29, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
I did. He did all he could and then recommended me to you. And regarding my comment about "agendas", that sort of advice leaves me confused and frustrated. I have suffered outright harassment by members calling me worse names than "having an agenda", and I cannot call them on their behavior but they can get away with name calling and other abuses without so much as a slap on the wrist? Wikipedia needs major reform to its policies re: member conduct, in my opinion. Hope that helps clarify my position for you.TH1980 (talk) 00:24, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
If he recommended that you ask me (and I'd like to see where he did that), he made a mistake. I'm not involved in this any more than I already am, and I decline to address this issue. DS (talk) 01:42, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

It seems to me that sandboxes should be private, not subject to review by nosy parkers. I think you should remove sandbox pages from the area that you so righteously patrol. Eleuther (talk) 00:53, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

You have no idea how much garbage people try putting in their sandboxes. DS (talk) 03:56, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for responding to my complaint with a condescending put-down, instead of something meaningful. Eleuther (talk) 09:25, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
Sandboxes are private insofar as you're the only one who's supposed to edit them. They're not private in the sense of nobody else having access to them. Every edit made on Wikipedia can be seen by everyone else at all times. DS (talk) 12:29, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
Okay, read away, but why are you sending me black-flag notices about the fact that you have patrolled my sandbox? Don't bother to reply, I have removed the offending material, and will no longer try to use the sandbox facility. Jerk. Eleuther (talk) 01:59, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
